Such a machine is called a concentrator. My mom has one, for added oxygenation as she sleeps. The vagaries of age.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

Didn't Nimoy give up the Star Trek Convention circuit a year or two ago? I wonder if COPD was the reason for his decision.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

For years, now, he's always been kind of clearing his throat, like he was coughing up a little phlegm, or something, during interviews. I'm not surprised that he needs extra oxygen, these days, from all his past smoking. He should do anti-smoking ads, or something, now that people are thinking about his health and all that. I hope he lives for another decade, but still ... living well into one's 80's after having been a famous celebrity for most of their lives is more than many can look forward to. I wish him The Very Best.

Mr. Nimoy just tweeted,"@TheRealNimoy: I quit smoking 30 yrs ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!! LLAP"

I'm hoping for the best for him.

Re: Leonard Nimoy's Health

I have a friend, whose wife has had COPD for over 10 years now, so I guess that it's something that you can live with, or even fight, if you've a mind to!

The last time i talked to Leonard was at Walter's Star Event in 2012, he seemed in good health then, sad how these things can happen.

It sounds as if he's tackling the problem with cautious optimism, much as we'd expect of him.
